Legends in the Air by Philip West features RAF Lancasters of 617 Squadron.
Probably the most famous RAF Squadron in history, mainly due to the audacious Dambuster raid in 1943. Other notably successful missions flying their Avro Lancaster bombers included precision raids on the mighty German battleship Tirpitz, U-boat pens, railways, V-weapons sites, canals and bridges.
Through their skill and bravery 617 Squadron crews received many high honours including VCs for Wing Commander Guy Gibson and Wing Commander Leonard Cheshire.
